Honestly I don't think Ross is looking to move the team or trying to play a fear card. I think this is purely a business move for his company. I think he has every intention of renovating Sun Life Stadium and keeping the team in Miami for a long time. With that said, should the renovations fall through, the LA option could be on the table and could end up being Ross' "break glass in emergency" down the road.
Would local investors like Marino and others buy the team and keep them here? Hope so
We really need to read the damn article!
As for the Amish Mafia, here in Pennsylvania we laugh at how fake that show is and how gullible people are. I have watched a few episodes and it is entertaining to watch. Very fake, but still fun to watch.
I don't know what I would do if they relocated...unless it was to Colorado Springs....Hopefully Ross can renovate Sun Life and we can start winning...I think if we continue to lose and not make the playoffs that might be the reason we relocate, as much as the stadium issues and empty seats.
NFL teams moving locations is a RARE occurrence, and Goodell's obvious zeitgiest is for more teams, not for teams moving. If the Dolphins left Miami you'd just have to put another team in Miami. It's stupid.
Even IF this is an intentional message -- which I doubt -- it's bush league intimidation at best. Ross had the opportunity to get in before the Marlins and get a new stadium in a prime location. The city commissioners were obviously ripe to be won over. But instead he decided to count his nickels and stay in the old stadium until Goodell finally pointed out that it's a dinosaur. I wish I could have been there when the realization finally hit Ross and crew. How painful that must have been, like having a guest come over and politely point out that your house smells like cat piss.
Not getting a new stadium is Ross' fault, and now he and the team have to pay for it. If he wants to make some half assed macho statement about taking the Dolphins out of Miami, let him. I'll be content to laugh.
Question. Lets say worst case the franchise was relocated. Would the city keep the nickname of "Dolphins" like Cleveland did with the Browns? If worst case happened, maybe a new owner would bring a new team a few years down the road and build a stadium with that Orange Bowl feel to give Miami a home field advantage.
